    My friend and neighbor has lost his vision. (Navy Veteran) He has a special needs son that would qualify to be institutionalized. But sheer determination has allowed for his son to be cared for at home. My neighbor can no longer drive, or write out checks for his monthly bills. Please pray for this man as he has a heart as big as the state he lives in. (Texas). Thank you !

    Say ‘Ukraine’ today and, if you’re lucky, you’ll get someone who knows there’s still a conflict in that country. Sergey Rakhuba with Mission Eurasia says while the bloody conflict between Ukraine and Russia is ongoing, the Ukrainian Church is moving. (Last September) around 500,000 evangelical believers gathered in the central square of Kiev, Ukraine to celebrate the Protestant Reformation’s 500th anniversary and to thank God for His faithfulness in their country. Rakhuba was in contact with colleagues attending the event, and he says, “They reported over 500,000 across denominational lines from all the churches in Kiev and surrounding areas. Many...

    I have an important announcement of interest to long-time FReepers: FReeper GladesGuru, ecologist, and private property advocate, has died from complications due to prostate cancer. He was 75. Jan (pronounced “Yan”) Jacobson was a man of acerbic wit who could cut to the bottom line with a merciless precision. Pity the bureaucrat or academic peddling questionable “facts” under his scrutiny. His passion was wildlife biology and its relation to habitat. For over thirty years, he was Director of the Everglades Institute, a private parcel within the Big Cypress National Preserve, immediately adjacent to Everglades National Park. The parcel is unusual...

    Surah al-Fath is the 48th chapter of the Qur’an. It promises Muslims who wage jihad much material reward: “Allah has promised you much booty that you will take and has hastened for you this and withheld the hands of people from you – that it may be a sign for the believers and He may guide you to a straight path” (48:20).It also contains this command:”Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those with him are ruthless against the unbelievers, merciful among themselves” (48:29).This is the message that the Turkish government is giving to its soldiers as it sends them...

    A San Diego abortion business that was the site of an abortionist’s “bizarre demonic rant” against a pro-life activist has been closed down by a chain of California clinics, according to Operation Rescue. Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger said this week the Miramar Road site, which is part of the FPA Women’s Health chain, was closed Nov. 17. It was abortionist Robert Santella who confronted pro-life activist Zephaniah Mel with a pair of surgical scissors, a rant that included hissing and growling, and a confession that he loved killing children. “That behavior, along with complaints of malpractice and botched abortions, resulted...
